    (In dedication to a childhood freind who was recently shot to death and a couple other freinds who met a similiar fate.)


    AS the bullet enters the flesh
    the mind is not at rest
    but sufferin from conditions
    as a result of the plight
    and sufferin endured
    by the ones who came before him.
    Freedom did not come
    since on the slave can make himself free
    the mind and soul are still in shackles and chains
    that the ancestors wore on their feet,arms and neck.


    As the bullet enters the flesh
    you can hear the moans
    from the victim as a result
    of the bullet
    but also
    the soulfull pain passed down
    from his ancestors
    to him while in the womb.

    As the bullet enters the flesh
    the maze closes up
    knowing not where to turn
    and not where to learn
    ones true place
    in the international revolution.


    As the bullet enters the flesh
    the broken homes become silent
    reflecting on the pain
    caused by the main
    reason for much of his peoples troubles
    as youth.

    As the bullet enters the flesh
    the anger ceases
    from the place it came
    in the heart of a warrior
    without a place to fight
    and a people divided
    between the churches
    on the left
    and the right.

    As the bullet enters the flesh
    the heart stops
    the mind stops
    the soul continues
    and the violence as well.

    It will someday cease.

    Hopefully that someday will be soon. You scribed this piece so vividly. The bullet's impact awakens what is past and continues piercing into the flesh of the future, a heinous cycle that we pray will end. I am sorry for your loss brotha.

    its always a shame when innocent blood has been shed. for what to leave our souls to be empty. because of part of our what we share with loves one seemed to die with them. i enjoyed this very emotional piece as we have to keep on praying that we too must never suffer the same fate. Ikhan i missed you brother hope to see you flowing soon.

    someday , somehow , somewhere , it will end to a peaceful love
    and bullets will stop ringing out and voices will start in better togetherness.
